The eyelashes on that video are made from the legs of dead bugs. Relax, it's a video installation by artist Jessica Harrison, not a new brand of lash enhancers. But would you be surprised if it was?
Consider what we'll do to get our flutter on.
Apply a Boner booster: RapidLash a topical lash product with a frightening demo video, contains a hair-growth ingredient Prostaglandin, which is used to treat glaucoma. It's also used to administer abortions and cure erectile dysfunction.
Not touch your eyes for two months: Some women opt to have a expert breath in their face for an hour as they glue fake lashes to their real ones. The treatment, offered by Novalash, can cost upwards of $300 but it lasts for two months. That is if you never, ever rub your eyes.
Kill: When a red fox died, I really hope someone told him it was to feed a family of horses. The truth--that he died for Jennifer Lopez's lashes, would just add insult to injury. At her most J.Lo-y, during the 2001 Oscars, Bennifer's equally blah half, wore false lashes made from red fox fur.
Blindness: If false eyelashes aren't applied properly, at the glue is strong, it can make your lids stick together. So that's fun.
Risk having a face that scares children: Latisse, the popular solution now being hawked by Claire Danes, has some interesting warnings, like "may cause increased brown pigmentation of the colored part of the eye which is likely permanent." So you're eye color could change forever. Okay. Wait to a dark, vampire brown? Hmm. "Eyelid skin darkening may occur which may be reversible." So not only could your eyes turn brown your lids could turn brown too. Disturbing but at least you can cover it up with make-up. Anything else? "Hair growth may occur in other skin areas that LATISSE® solution frequently touches." Hairy eyeballs and eye-lids? Is that what they're saying? Oh my god. Well how about a horn? Will it grow a horn on my forehead, because at this point, I'm better off styling myself after a Maurice Sendak cartoon monster than Claire Danes.
